i retract my theory about it not being obitio. it def is him. last week they made it more obvious to me.
tobi says.."nice eye" to kakashi
and kakashi says" look who's trying to act all tough now"
obito was a crybaby in kakashi gaiden.
Correct me if I'm wrong, but I thought tobi was saying "nice eye" to kakashi b/c kakashi was making the observation that the pains arent using their abilities because "perfectly controlling these tail beasts with eye power alone already takes a hefty amount" and I dont think kakashi said "look who's trying to act all tough now," if so I missed it. Instead tobi said "Now excuse me while I try and act a bit tough." He's prob saying this cause kakashi was underestimating him.
Also, Obitio got his right side crushed, giving his left eye to kakashi, if so how come tobi has his right eye in the beginning? If he stole it from someone, why not have both eyes and just replace it later with the 6paths?
All this from mangastream lol. Sorry for the nerd talk, back to studying for finals~
